Pediatric Opthamologist in Basel


Can anyone recommend an Opthamologist for my son? He is 7 years old and the teacher thinks he will need to get his eyes checked since he cannot read the board from a distance. Man, I am freaking out, the couple of places I called don't have appointments until March.

Thanks a lot.

Re: Pediatric Opthamologist in Basel

We use this physician for check ups of our daughter:
Dr.med.Pavel Schneider
Augenarzt FMH
Steinengraben 67, 4051 Basel
Tel. 061 272 19 19
He is actually not exclusively pediatric ophthalmologist but looks after adults too, the last time I called to book a regular check up they were able to offer me an appointment next week, hope this helps.

You may want to check out the Augenklinik at the University of Basel if you are looking for an opthamologist (I called two weeks ago for my appointment tomorrow).

I do not recall if they have a pediatric specialist, but I did see several infants receiving eye examinations the last time I was there. I presume that since this clinic is part of the University Hospital system, there should be someone there who can help with your little one.

The eye clinic is located at:

Mittlere Strasse 91
4031 Basel
Tel. 061 265 87 87

Their website is: www.unispital-basel.ch/augenklinik.php

I hope this helps and good luck!
